Having previously taught classes and workshops for adults at places such as the Ashmolean museum in Oxford, JASSO (the Jewellery And Silver Society Oxford) and Waterperry, I am delighted to have resumed teaching following a break to study with the Gemmological Association of Great Britain.

2019 courses and workshops


JASSO (Jewellery And Silver Society Oxford)

The spring 2019 term of beginner's silver jewellery making classes is now available to book.  Taking students on a project-based journey through some of the techniques involved in crafting jewellery by hand, building on previously explored skills as we progress. The dates for the 10 week Friday afternoon (1.30-4.30) course are 11 January, 18 January, 25 January, 1 February, 8 February, 15 February, 1 March, 8 March, 15 March and 22 March.  

Having the amazing opportunity to look at some of the pieces within the Ashmolean's collection "up close and personal" as part of the day there makes it one of my favourite places to teach a workshop.  This workshop helped mark the re-opening of the Egyptian galleries
Introduction to Gemmology Day on Sunday 10 February. Have you ever wondered how gemmologists identify different gemstones - how you would tell an aquamarine from a sky blue topaz... This day covers some of the physical properties of gemstones and how these can be used to identify them - a fun mix of theory (a bit of science) and using gemmologists' tools to see these for yourself. An opportunity for me to share both my passion for the subject and my gem collection!

Further details and enrolment information for any JASSO courses is available on JASSO's website or please contact me if you would like more details.
